Trump's '5 for 5!' tweet had Twitter users hilariously decoding its meaning
Something out there is winning, according to President Donald Trump's Twitter account. But for a brief time Wednesday morning, we were just a bit confused as to what or whom.
On Wednesday morning, Trump tweeted the following (refreshingly short) eight-character message to his followers: "5 for 5!"
But because he didn't provide any context in the tweet itself, Twitter users did what they do best and turned the simple message into a fun and slightly over-the-top meme.
One person suggested this was Trump's way of announcing that he's seen all the Shrek films, while another was sure this had something to do with his lunch order, and a few thought it could be the number of people in Trump's orbit found guilty of crimes. The possibilities are nearly endless.
While memes are fun, Trump was likely referring to the special elections that took place around the country on Tuesday. Four (not five) of his tweets from the previous day congratulated Republicans in Ohio, Michigan, and Missouri for their wins.
Though Trump appears to have been bragging about wins for five candidates he endorsed, the races in Ohio and Kansas were still considered "too close to call" on Wednesday. After his "5 for 5!" tweet, he went on to claim that "as long as I campaign and/or support Senate and House candidates (within reason), they will win!"
